‘Terraria’ reaches 30 million player milestone, major update in the works

Share

Re-Logic has announced that Terraria has finally reached over 30 million players since its 2011 launch. The developers offer a 50% discount to celebrate the milestone.

The announcement arrived through Terraria’s official forum and its official Twitter account. The game managed to reach 30 million players in a span of nine years.

A major milestone since its first launch

First launched in 2011, Terraria has gained a massive following for the sandbox action-adventure gaming experience it brings. The game was initially released on Windows for PC, and it has been ported to PlayStation, Xbox, and on mobile. The Nintendo Switch version came last year.

Over the years, Re-Logic has sold 1.4 million copies on PC, 7.6 million copies on different consoles, and 8.7 million copies on mobile.

‘Terraria: Journey’s End’ arriving this 2020

Since its arrival, Terraria continues to release updates to keep the game more exciting. Updates that include new biomes, increased difficulty, and more bosses have been added.

This year, the last major update of the game called Journey’s End is coming. Slated to be released last year, the developers decided to delay the launching of the new update to include additional features and to polish the game.

Re-Logic announced on its official forum:

“In the end, it comes down to a hard choice: scrap a bunch of the cool stuff that we want to see in Journey’s End and force this out for 2019 or go ahead and push it into 2020 and make sure that we don’t cut corners or leave a ton of things on the cutting room floor to hit that deadline.”
